    Viper History Book is DONE

    I'm happy to report that the Viper - 25 Years of Hisssstory book is finally completed. I sent the files off to the printer on Monday. From there, the printing and shipping process takes about 3 months. For those of you who preordered, thanks for your patience. The book took about a year longer than I expected, mainly because I got more material from Team Viper members that I wanted to add to the book. I think you'll find it was worth the wait. Some great behind the scenes stories of why things happened the way they did, a glimpse at things that might have been, and some never-before-published images from Team Viper members as well as my personal collection. Originally, the book was going to be 160 pages, but it ended up at 272 pages. It covers the complete history of Viper from concept to end of Gen V. It's part coffee-table book, part documentation book. The chapters are:

    Foreword (By Bob Lutz)
    Concept Car
    Gen I
    Gen II
    Gen III
    Gen IV
    Gen V
    Supporting Cast (vendors)
    Viper Racing (written by Shawn Romig)
    Epilogue

    I'm only printing what's ordered, this book is not being sold through traditional book stores or Amazon. If you want a copy and haven't already ordered it, you can still do so at www.buyviperbooks.com. I'll be submitting the print order next week.

    Hi Maurice, I tried to order a copy just now, but as I'm in the UK I'm having problems.

    Hmmm. Sometimes their address fields expect something that isn't correct. Did you enter anything in the "State" field? If not, try a US state like CA or something and see if it takes it.

    Technically, it should accept anything in that field. I'm looking at other foreign orders and they have all kinds of things in that field. If you can't get it to work, let me know what you enter and I can send it to the tech team.

    Great work Maurice. Glad it's finally on its way, I'm sure it won't disappoint. Having all the Viper books of the past (some of them yours) this will surely be one of the best.

    He signed the last book that I purchased from him, I could be wrong but I think he may sign all of his book.. Hopefully this statement if wrong doesn't put him a bad spot..
